With the exception of a one-hour meeting to go over schemes, the Wildcats have Friday off to do whatever they please. It has been a long and tiring run since the team started practicing again on Christmas night, so Coach Cal is giving his players a day of rest today. They have gone nine straight days, practicing twice most days, with an evening meal and meetings to end the night.
“They deserve a day off. I’m proud of the progress,” Coach Cal tweeted Friday morning. “They’re all learning to deal with the grind of becoming a better team and a better player.”
Practice picks back up Saturday for a few more days before Wednesday night’s game against Mississippi State to open up conference play. This is the longest stretch of the season between games, and it’s an important one. Big Blue Nation can’t wait to see how the players come out of Camp Cal.
